Wang Bluffs Marques Off Top Pair

AaronMcBride • Level 33: 125,000-250,000, 250,000 ante
Haoxiang Wang

Haoxiang Wang raised under the gun with {k-Hearts}{q-Clubs} and both Pedro Marques on the button holding {k-Clubs}{j-Clubs} and Piotr Nurzynski in the big blind with {a-Diamonds}{10-Hearts} called.

The flop came down {4-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{2-Spades}, and both Wang and Nurzynski checked to Marques who bet 750,000. Nurzynski folded, but Wang got tricky and raised to 2m.

Marques made the call, and when the {3-Spades} hit the turn, Wang continued his aggression and bet 4m. Marques had a stack worth 8.4m and needed time to think with his top pair. A minute passed, and he was yet to make his decision, but with the pressure on and time running out he opted to fold, and Wang's bluff worked.
